Bristol, gateway to the West country and lots more

Set on the top of the estuary between Wales and the West country, Bristol has a long seafaring tradition to explore. There is also a thriving media and TV industry in Bristol, and as there are two universities, the city has a lively buzz with a great choice of nightlife. Take a trip to the old port area, which is now renovated and full of shops and bars as well as teeming with history. Bath and Glastonbury are worth a day trip and easy to reach from Bristol as well.


Bristol at its best

Like the rest of the UK, Bristol has a temperate climate, and spring and autumn can be wet and changeable. However, summers between June and September are warm and pleasant, and there's a wealth of things to enjoy. Perhaps try the Mayfest, a Theatre festival throughout the month of May, or the 'Bristol International Balloon Fiesta' in August. Or for those who like a colourful parade, try the St Paul's Carnival on the 1st weekend in July. There's also the 'BrisFest', a community music festival, which takes place in September, and Banksy's street art is a must-see.


Bristol: before you go

The cost of living in Bristol is lower than in London, but not as low as in some areas of the north. A basic meal out will cost from around £5 and a pint of beer costs roughly £3.50. There are some great beers to try in this part of the UK, as well as cider which originates from the West country.


Local Bristol information

As the UK's eighth largest city, Bristol has it's own airport which is 8 miles from central Bristol. The Flyer bus (A1), takes 35 minutes to reach the centre and is roughly £11 for a return. A £7 single will take you to Temple Meads Station or the main bus station. Taxi fares are between £25 and £40. Low budget hotels start from £15 pp night, and a mid price hotel will be around £45. Most attractions within the centre are close enough to walk around, but there is a good bicycle path network, and bicycle hire costs about £12 per day or £50 per week. 'First Bristol' run the local buses, and a single ticket is around £1.60. One day passes for zones 1 and 2 are around £4. There's also a good local rail network.
